Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
New music including Fantastic Negrito, Neko Case, Ry Cooder, Marcus Miller with Trombone Shorty, Wussy, Matthew Sweet, Amos Lee, Leeds, Ryley Walker, Kamasi Washington, Ray Lamontagne and fab new duo Peter Buck and Joseph Arthur can be found at the center of this episode. Even adding in the return of Parlament, Weezer paying tribute to Toto, the Springsteen archive release I've been hoping for, a musical dissertation on "Groovin'" and alternate takes from The Clash and Morphine still only cover about half the nuggets lovingly hand mixed just for you this time around.
Can't believe I went more than a month without posting but I've been in dental reconstruction hell, as well as very busy at work. That said, here's a few new and old things that I've been cranking in the Basement Studio recently.
I pulled this album out of the wall last week for Phoebe snow's version of "Shaky Ground" and wound up listening to the entire thing all the way through for the first time in many years. Once I got to Eddie and David Brigati doing "Groovin" I found myself in the middle of a full-blown Rascals bender.
Many have asked how to keep the From The Basement programs afloat, especially now that I am unemployed. Please donate via PayPal below whatever you feel you can afford to help cover my costs. Thank you.
